Goals of Shimadzu Corporation
Throughout our long 140 year history since Shimadzu was founded in 1875, we have remained committed to "helping create a better international society by identifying core characteristics of societal challenges, confronting those challenges head-on from a scientific perspective, and then using scientific and technical improvements to create a better society,"based on Shimadzu's corporate philosophy "Contributing to Society through Science and Technology" and management principle "Realizing Our Wishes for the Well-being of both Mankind and the Earth." Our goal is to utilize science and technology in our particular areas of business, which are human health, safety and security of society, and industrial development, to help build a more affluent society. By doing so, we intend to achieve ongoing growth and increase corporate value.
Medium-Term Management Plan and Corresponding Progress
The medium-term management plan specifies a slogan "Become a Company That Solves Challenges in Society in Collaboration with Partners All Around the World." In that effort, we have identified four growth fields, healthcare, infrastructure, materials, and environmental/energy fields, where we are actively making investments and implementing measures.
Working Together with Stakeholders
We believe that earning greater trust from our various stakeholders will lead to sustainable growth and development for both Shimadzu businesses and society.
The Shimadzu Group will achieve sustainable growth and increase the medium and long-term corporate value by setting corporate social responsibility as a core principle for management, by ensuring the health and transparency of management practices, by facing society challenges head-on while also utilizing science and technology, and by applying our full effort toward satisfying the expectations of stakeholders through active dialog.
